Food Suggestions
An aromatic variety of German origin that goes well with strong flavours in food, particularly spicy food. Best enjoyed chilled.
In The Vineyard
It is low yielding and early ripening and block used in 29 years old. The canopy is opened as much as possible to allow the darkening of the berries.
About The Harvest
Handpicked at optimal ripeness with a small percentage of botrytis
In The Cellar
After crushing and destalking about 8hrs of skin contact is allowed for maximum aroma extraction before pressing. After setting selected yeast is added for a controlled cold fermentation. It is sterilized and filtered before bottling.
Additional Information
